Why Equitable Development?

Equitable TOD combines people and place-based approaches to ensure that the value created when land near transit is built out is accessible to, and provides opportunities for, all community residents living near transit.

The market near Dome/GWCC/ Philips/CNN station is strong and growing and has a moderate/high probability of changing demographics. Renters are the first to be affected by an increase in property values in a growing market. As the market grows housing values will increase, limiting income diversity.

Achieving Equitable Development

In order to retain current residents and provide access to new amenities and services, Transformation Alliance’s equitable development strategy for this station area is:

  • preserve affordable housing
  • stablize rents to help existing residents stay
  • introduce new compact housing types
  • improve infrastructure around the MARTA station
